Self-Advocacy Through Storytelling with Katie Vigos, RN
Katie Vigos is a nurse who knew she wanted to be in the healthcare profession even before entering university. In this episode, host D and Katie discuss her current career as a per diem nurse specializing in critical care and her past work creating the Empowered Birth Project which started as a way of personal storytelling and blossomed into an online source of information and empowerment for mothers. Katie and D also chat about how COVID has changed per diem nursing and nursing at large, how Katie avoids nurse burnout, and send their thoughts out to expecting mothers at a time where COVID has added more uncertainties to one’s birthing journey.
